Can I ask what about you see in the Mac app that is different than the web app? The new standalone Mac app works for a 350 here, and of note:
- This appears to be a Chromium Embedded browser wrapped around the regular SlingPlayer browser plugin (at least on the Mac). If you're familiar with the concept of a "site specific browser" (for example Fluid on the Mac) that's pretty much what the new player is.
- There doesn't appear to be any controls to connect directly to a slingbox. It's likely still dependent on Sling Inc.'s website, finder service, etc
- There appears to be a new (?) "standard" view that shows the TV guide to the side of the streaming video
But I'm not seeing something that makes me say "wow" in the new desktop (Mac) app.
